HISTORY OF DEFENCE ACADEMY ABDB

 

Defence Academy, Royal Brunei Armed Forces was officially established on 25 November 2010 as a newly-formed unit under the administration of Ministry of Defence. The origins of Defence Academy, Royal Brunei Armed Forces lie in the aspiration to have a Junior Staff Course muted in the 2004 white paper. This grew to the desire to have a Defence Academy to cover officers' development. The first major step for this was the establishment of Officer Cadet School. The next part was the establishment of a Command & Staff College.




Defence White Paper 2007:

"A Defence Academy is to be established to be the focus of continuous professional developmentā€¦the next step will be to establish an Officer Cadet School, followed by a Command and Staff College"


Defence White Paper 2011:

"Establishment of the Defence Academy represents a major step forward. It offers a well-structured programme of courses for junior to mid-ranking officers at each step of their career progression"

Currently the Defence Academy is made up of three pillars: the Officer Cadet School, Leadership and Management Centre and Command and Staff College. The Defence Academy Headquarters then provides the support and policy umbrella for the whole institution.



SEJARAH AKADEMI PERTAHANAN ABDB

 

Akademi Pertahanan, Angkatan Bersenjata Diraja Brunei secara rasminya telah ditubuhkan pada 25 November 2010 sebagai satu unit baru tertubuh dibawah pentadbiran Kementerian Pertahanan. Hasrat untuk menubuhkan Akademi Pertahanan lahir dari aspirasi pengendalian kursus Pegawai Staf Rendah sepertimana yang dihasratkan didalam Kertas Putih Pertahanan 2007 untuk mengembangkan aspek pendidikan pegawai di kesemua peringkat secara menyeluruh. Hasil dari aspirasi dan hasrat tersebut, Sekolah Pegawai Kadet telah pun ditubuhkan pada tahun 2008 diikuti dengan penubuhan Maktab Turus pada 25 November 2010. Akademi Pertahanan telah ditubuhkan secara rasmi dengan penubuhan Maktab Turus.




Kertas Putih Pertahanan 2007:

"Sebuah Akademi Pertahanan harus ditubuhkan sebagai fokus perkembangan professional lanjutan...langkah berikutnya adalah menubuhkan Sekolah Pegawai Kadet dan diikuti dengan Maktab Turus"

"Penubuhan Akademi Pertahanan adalah merupakan satu langkah ke hadapan. Ia menawarkan kursus yang tersusun dan teratur untuk pegawai peringkat muda dan pertengahan disetiap langkah perkembangan kerjaya mereka"
